Ayutthaya made all to win over this trip at Thirsk when last sighted in April and is worth a market check now returning from an absence, though of more interest is HUMBLE GRATITUDE, who was beaten by less than two lengths over the extended 7f at Chester last time and wouldn't need to find much improvement in order to go one better. Novice winner Addis Ababa is unexposed now going handicapping, while Falmouth Light, who struck on his first start for Iain Jardine over 1m2f at Doncaster, could also take a hand.

Mister Belvedere remains only 2lb higher than when winning over this trip at York on his penultimate outing and has viable place claims, likewise Super Kid, a former Godolphin inmate who has bounced back from a long absence and landed his first start for his current stable at Wolverhampton last time.

AGROTERA backed up her 1m victory in a Windsor maiden by landing the Sandringham last time and although she was subsequently hiked up the ratings by the handicapper, she steps up in grade now and is expected to take it in her stride. Shepherd Market rattled the crossbar in Listed company at Newbury last year and is entitled to build on a near miss on her comeback at Haydock in May. La Figlia made a winning start for her new stable at Chelmsford last time and could also take a hand.

ELWAZIR built on his 1m2f victory at Sandown when following up over the same trip at Ascot last month and now looks ready to try his luck outside of handicaps. The latter comment is also applicable to Communique, who arrives on a hat-trick after handicap victories at Newmarket's July meeting and at Glorious Goodwood. Zaaki was a short-head second to the last-named at HQ and has place claims, as does recent York Group 2 second Brorocco.
